Urgent Action Update: Demand Release Of Cuban Graffiti Artist (Cuba: UA 273/16)
Cuban graffiti artist Danilo Maldonado Machado (‘El Sexto’) has been transferred to another new detention centre where he continues to be detained without charge since his arrest on 26 November. He is a prisoner of conscience who must be released immediately and unconditionally.
Amnesty International is concerned about the fairness of proceedings leading to the trial and conviction of Leonard Peltier, an Anishinabe-Lakota Native American who was convicted of murdering two FBI agents.
